Smarter windows keep weather
out where it belongs.
3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film is a low emissivity, or “Low E,” window film that helps improve
the insulation value of a typical single-pane window close to that of a double-pane window, and of a double-pane
close to that of a triple-pane. Application of 3M™
Climate Control Window Film is much, much less
expensive than actually replacing all that glass, and the results rival or match the performance, and
appearance, of new glass.
Historic registered buildings, newer office towers, and every sort of building in between can be improved
by the addition of 3M™ Thinsulate™ Climate Control Window Film. It enhances sustainability, comfort, and
helps to provide fade protection, while remaining virtually invisible, with a neutral appearance that will not
dramatically change the look of your windows—inside or out.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY
This stately 1912 Tudor mansion needed to comply
with laws mandating greater energy efficiency
in government-owned buildings. 3M™
Climate Control Window Film 75 was applied to 1,100
square feet of glass, including intricate starburst-
patterned and French-paned windows. This resulted
in increased comfort (especially during cold Minnesota
winters) and increased energy efficiency. Our unique
low-e window film is designed to increase the
window’s insulation value; single-pane performs
close to that of a double-pane and double-pane close
to that of a triple-pane. It is also designed to provide
improved UV protection for antiques and artifacts.
A single pane window loses
20 times as much heat as
